A Cup of Christmas Tea

For as long as I can remember, every year we had Christmas Tea. I’m not sure where my mom got the recipe, but we all loved it! It is warm and citrusy and good!

THE TRADITION…

Making Christmas Tea is a tradition our family continues. Each year we make tons and tons of tea to share. Last night was my 2nd round of tea making.

All packed up and ready to go…

THE BOOK…

In the 80s Tom Hegg wrote a book called, A Cup of Christmas Tea.

This book tells the story of a young man’s “obligation” turned into a great blessing. When my children were still at home one of our traditions was to slow down for a evening, read the book and enjoy a cup of tea together.

It is a short and sweet book and if you’d like to hear it read, check out the YouTube video below…

THE RECIPE…

2 cups Tang
1 1/2 cups sugar (white)
1/2 cup instant tea powder
